Why InfluxData?

InfluxData is the premier real-time monitoring and analytics platform provider. Customers trust InfluxData’s products to deliver the visibility and insight into log, metric, IoT, and sensor data to provide an always-on single consolidated view of their information. InfluxData provides a comprehensive set of products that support the collection, storage, visualization, and alerting of time-series data. We are both an active contributor to the open source Telegraf, InfluxDB, Chronograf and Kapacitor (TICK) projects as well as building our products using this open source core.

Architectural Overview

InfluxData Architecture

Collect

InfluxData provides a comprehensive set of tools and services to get metrics and events data from sensors, devices, systems, machines, containers, and applications. InfluxData’s collection services are built from the open source Telegraf project. InfluxData provides a number of integrations to popular databases, containers, services, applications, and other monitoring and alerting products.

Analyze

Once data is collected it needs to be stored. InfluxData includes the open source time-series database InfluxDB. InfluxDB offers an easy-to-use SQL-like query language for interacting with and analyzing data. InfluxData also provides a simple graphing and visualization application, based on the open source project Chronograf, to perform ad hoc exploration of your data. It supports a library of intelligent, pre-configured dashboards for common data sets. In addition, InfluxData supports using other visualization and analytics tools such as Grafana.

Act

Naturally, InfluxData supports monitoring, but today’s modern applications require actions. InfluxData uses the open source Kapacitor project to plug in custom logic or user defined functions to process alerts with dynamic thresholds, match metrics for patterns or compute statistical anomalies, automatically scale containers, and basically do anything that you can program.

Differentiators

Time to Value

InfluxData’s products are simple, without external dependencies, yet flexible enough for complex deployments. Get started collecting, storing, visualizing and alerting on time-series data in minutes – not days or weeks. Getting started is as simple as signing up for InfluxCloud, or a trial of InfluxEnterprise.

Real Action in Real-Time

InfluxData gives you visibility with real-time access out of the gate so you can quickly find value in your data — identify patterns, predict the future, control systems, and turn insight into action. Whether your data comes from humans, machines, or sensors, get instant insights and stay ahead of the curve.

Fast, Scalable, Available

InfluxData’s powerful engine is fast, supporting millions of writes per second, meeting the demands of even the largest monitoring and IoT deployments. And with native clustering, InfluxData offers high availability — eliminating single points of failure — and simple scale-out.

InfluxCloud

InfluxCloud is the easiest way to get started! InfluxCloud is a fully managed SaaS offering with all the features of the InfluxData platform. InfluxCloud includes a hardened version of the open source core (TICK stack), clustering for high availability and scalability (should you need it), Grafana for advanced visualization, and automatic backup and restore functionality.

InfluxEnterprise

InfluxEnterprise is the choice if you want to run the InfluxData platform on YOUR infrastructure. InfluxEnterprise is priced by node  and is the software and support subscription that turns any InfluxData instance into a production-ready cluster. InfluxEnterprise includes all the features of the InfluxData platform, including a hardened version of the open source core (TICK stack), clustering for high availability and scalability, advanced backup and restore functionality, and a whole lot more!
